. some of his biggest battles may be by democrats. >> this will be decided by swing votes. joe manchin in west virginia. right after newtown he suggested that he was going to flip on this. open to gun control, maybe supporting an assault weapons ban. this week joe manchin is pouring cold water on that and seems to be back pedaling. al franken is up for re-election. today he put out statement saying in principle he supports a ban on assault weapons but didn't say he supports legislation to do that. what the fear is i'm told by one top democratic senator an assault weapons ban suggests the president is taking weapons away that plays into republican arguments like marco rubio who said this today on fox. >> there is a second amendment. i didn't write the constitution. i believe in it. if you are going to do anything that impacts it. it better make some sense. here is the problem that i have by the president's own admission, the things that they're putting forward would have done nothing to prevent what happened, for example, in connecticut. >> and that's why top democratic senator is telli
with the president's plan right now? >> harry reid, joe manchin from west virginia, bob casey from pennsylvania. the aim for the president now is to find these n.r.a.-backed democrats and squeeze them and put the pressure on and say, are you uncomfortable when i bring little children up here to talk about schoolplace shootings? i can do it in your state or where you live and i can come and keep the pressure on you, until you agree to do some kind of a gun ban and get on board. remember this, megyn, you hit it right on the head, if the president can't get legislation out of the senate, he can't begin to apply pressure on the house. he can talk about it, but until the senate can actually move legislation, it's not going to work, so somebody like joe manchin who we first met on the national scene shooting with a deer rifle, the president's cap and trade bill back in 2010, if he can't get guys like that to sign up and get on board, nothing will happen. i bet he'll come with a pretty heavy hand. >> megyn: he's a west virginia guy, joe manchin and you're a west virginia guy. west virginia is not goin
's bring in our political panel angela mcglowan, and a former chief of staff to joe manchin. it boggles the mind, the president with a jobs council the last year january, 2012. unemployment tad, angela and chris, 8.5% and now fallen to 7.8%, but while it's a good thing it's falling, there are till 21 million unemployed so unemployment has not fallen far enough. the light bulb has to go off. what progress is the job council making when creating more jobs? >> it's not made much progress and are we surprised that the president has not met with his jobs council in one year? this administration has been about political gesture, political manipulation, blame games, but what has really been done? kelly, remember in 2009 he appointed like 32 czar. we had an economic czar, a stimulus accountability czar, an interview czar. it's been about political gestures, but not actually solutions, but my question is, where is the public outrage? >> the public outrage, the public doesn't really understand what's going on with the jobs council, chris, weigh in on that for me. >> let's put some stuff into cont
is facing resistance from fellow democrats as well. look at joe manchin, the senator from west virginia, after the tragedy in newtown, he suggested even though he's a more conservative democrat from west virginia he might be supportive of an assault -- a ban on assault weapons and he's now walking that back a bit. senator al franken from minnesota, up for reelection in 2014, a liberal democrat, not conservative democrat. suggested yesterday he wasn't sure about a ban on assault weapons and today he's clarifying in fact he supports what he says is the principle of banning assault weapons, but didn't specifically say he supports legislation to ban those assault weapons. and so, it's interesting, because jay carney at the daily briefing today got a lot of questions of bringing democrats along, he says the president is confident after lobbying, and going out on the road eventually that some of these lawmakers will come along, take a listen. >> he firmly believes they are and he'll be having that covering with republicans and democrats and with americans more broadly. again, i think you've s

conservative areas like joe manchin. >> let's pose that question to you, bill, you want to ask her again? >> hey there, congresswoman, it's bill burton. i was asking do you think there's any hope for republicans who you can work with in the house in order to get anything done? what do you think there are republicans, what do you think that any republicans might support at all? >> i actually do think, because of the new super pack that gabby giffords and her husband and of course they are gun owners, they've been nra members, we have a new political reality out there, and i think that there is a mobilization of americans like we've never seen before and that's going to include the sportsman and it's going to include the gun owners that are saying we can do better to protect our communities and to protect the second amendment. so i think politically, we're going to see some of those members and areas that have been with the nra saying, taking another look and saying, am i going to be hearing from people in my community, from my voters that are saying, no, we have to make some sensible chan
, like joe manchin, the senator from west virginia, and other progun lawmakers who came out and said that they might be in favor of some sort of legislation early on. and then we didn't hear from some of them throughout this time. where they stand now, and how senator reid, the senate majority leader stands going forward. jon: that is going to be -- well the devil is in the details as always. bret baier the anchor of special report. i know you'll be on with a great program tonight on all of this. thank you. jenna: a critical deadline is approaching fast, the national credit card about to reach its limit and now democrats apparently want to get rid of that limit all together. the latest on this debate from capitol hill coming up. also, the world's newest luxury jet grounded now by japan. the latest problems with the dreamliner, next. if there was a pill to help protect your eye health as you age... would you take it? well, there is.

rounds or more plus universal background checks. senator joe manchin a lifelong member of the nra is open to such a plan and would like to see more. >> i would like to hear from them why you need a larger magazine. you can't push the nra and law-abiding gun owners, you have have them at the table. what are their preference protecting that. >> reporter: nra has made it clear it is not in favor of any ban on assault weapons. so the up tense battle on both sides will likely continue, martha. martha: what are we seeing from the nra as what they think will happen on the president's plan to curb gun violence? what are they proposing? what would they give? >> reporter: good question. the nra believes the president will not have enough support in congress to support any type of ban on assault weapons or even high-capacity magazines for that matter. the nra, martha, believes the root of the problem is mental illness. therefore it is pushing for a measure to keep guns out of the hands of those who have been adjudicated as people with mental illness problems. >> i think it is a false security to thi
